Nippon Labs Premium 6 ft. HDMI to mini HDMI cable with metal hood & gold-plated connectors 6ft Model MHDMI-6 6 feet
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: Works great. Connections fit tight in both my monitor and the output port on my video card. Cable length is plenty for my setup. Not much more to say.

Cons: None

Other Thoughts: There's not too much to say here. The cable either works, or it doesn't. In my case, it works great. No other comments needed.

MSI GeForce GTX 560 Ti (Fermi) DirectX 11 N560GTX-Ti Twin Frozr II 2GD5/OC 2GB 256-Bit GDDR5 PCI Express 2.0 x16 HDCP Ready SLI Support Video Card

  • neweggOwned For: more than 1 year

Pros: This card is great for my build. I have it nearly 2 years now, and no issues. Even now, it still runs any game I want on max graphics settings, and I don't drop below 60 fps, ever. It runs quiet, stays cool, and was easy to overclock further with the MSI Afterburner software.

Cons: The only con I have is the HDMI-to-Mini HDMI adapter. As others have mentioned, it doesn't sit tight in the mini HDMI port on the card. This has caused video to cut out a few times on me, while in the middle of playing a game. It is also too heavy, and I noticed that the connector bent after a while due to the weight. I remedied this situation by buying an actual HDMI-to-Mini HDMI cable separate from this, and now it works just fine. The new cable sits tight, and works great.

Other Thoughts: Overall this is a good, solid card. I've had it in my build for nearly 2 years now, and it still runs like brand new. When the time comes that I do decide to upgrade my card in the future, I will definitely stick with the MSI Twin Frozr setup. You can't beat it for the cooling capabilities. I may try a higher performance card for my next one. They've recently rolled out the 700 series cards, and I've contemplating a 770 or 780. Either way, I'll be sticking with the MSI card.

G.SKILL Ripjaws X Series 16GB (4 x 4GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 1600 (PC3 12800) Desktop Memory Model F3-12800CL9Q-16GBXL

Pros: Easy to install, great speed, reliable brand. The packaging they came in was solid, so I wasn't at all worried about shipping damage. They look pretty cool too, so for those of you with the plexi-glass side window on your case, this is a nice buy to make your internals look a bit more flashy as well.

Cons: None

Other Thoughts: These work great. It was a huge upgrade from the 4gb I had in my rig. I know it doesn't account for much, but the performance index in Windows went from 5.9 to 7.8 just by putting these in. I noticed a considerable improvement in gameplay, primarily with loading times. My rig is an i5 2500k o/c'd just slightly to 3.6 gHz, MSI Gefore GTX 560 Ti 2gb, Asrock Z68 mobo, and now added this RAM into the mix. My build runs exactly as I intended.
